The mission of the Foram Farm is to experimentally investigate how changing temperature and water chemistry affect shell chemistry in foraminifera in order to establish a chronology of glacial ice volume and ocean temperatures that spans the last 100 million years. This work will leverage expertise from other aquaculture colonies at Iowa State and around the world and eventually could expand its focus to study other marine invertebrates.
